Quest CE Releases Course on Political Contributions

MILWAUKEE – February 6, 2018– Quest CE, premier provider of compliance training and tracking technology solutions, today announced the addition of a new course to its Firm Element e-learning catalog.

The course, “FINRA Restrictions on Broker Political Contributions – Vol.2,” was developed to satisfy FINRA continuing education requirements while bringing an awareness to the restrictions that the regulator has placed on political contributions. FINRA’s related rules are largely mirrored off of the SEC’s pay-to-play rule. This course serves as a reminder for brokers to report any political contributions to the firm pursuant to firm policies and procedures and FINRA Rules 2030 and 4580.

Course Topics Include:

  • Pay-to-Play
  • FINRA Rule 2030
  • Limitation on Distribution and Solicitation Activities
  • Prohibition on Soliciting Activities
  • Exceptions: Ways in Which Contributions are Allowed
  • Prohibitions as Applied to Covered Investment Pools and Exemptions
  • FINRA Rule 4580
